CNN is already saying trump will win...God help us

CNN calls MS for Trump with a whopping 469 votes counted.

Is anyone really surprised Trump will win Mississippi? I'm not. For the record: white R voted for Kasich.

Are you ready for the Trumpening? It's coming.

Well, it is what it is. Trump is winning. Tonight is proof that the days of a few in MS telling other Republicans how they should vote is over.

When I heard Gov. Bryant supported Cruz I quickly changed my vote to Trump.

Well, our republicrat overlords told us Kasich is the man. And less than 10% of the "lemmings" in Mississippi listened to them. Looks like the era of big RINOs is over.

The 2012 GOP primary was won by Rick Santorum. That tells you everything you need to know about Mississippi Republicans.

Kasich campaigned to party officials, not voters.

The day of the thinking voter is over in America. We have just a little while longer before the left takes whats remains of free speech, guns and religious freedom. People will be forced to worship the utopian idealogy until the well of the Rich runs dry...then anarchy. Come quickly Lord Jesus.

With the cluster**** that was today's Senate District 25 race and the tight vote margin, I think we can expect a do-over election in the near future.

Well thank god Walter won. Bill would hVe been a disaster

Anonymous said...

wow. Bill really did a good showing in Madison but not so well in Jackson...Oxford House must have really buried him going back to his last campaign. He should stick to Madison Co. if he wants to have any sort of a viable path forward.

Billingsley should have taken everyone's advice, not run against Longwitz, and instead run for Supervisor. He would have made a decent supervisor.

@KF, do you think that Kasich is doing that purposefully? He has little to no direct path to victory outside of the convention.

When I voted I saw some 50 billingsley signs and maybe 2 or 3 Michel signs at the precinct. So naturally I voted for Michel. Seemed more efficient and not a lot of waste.

I voted in ridgeland and didn't have the senators on my ballot...only the president and US rep O.o were they supposed to give you a diff ballot?

Walter and Bill both ran good races and, honestly, voters were lucky to have two options like them. Not every legislative race is so fortunate. However, the story on this one is the complete ineptitude of our elections officials, Secretary of State on down.... Inexcusable actions. Following Sara Fowler cover the count on Twitter showed how much of a Mickey Mouse operation this was.

Sooooo, non-white R put Trump over the top? HaHa!

The people, not the republican party, gave Trump the win. The same people who have done so in the past and will do so in the future.
Politicians have in the past told the voters what they should do and think. Now someone is listening to the people. Politicians have no idea what the people want and do not care. They are paying for that.

KF 9:34 I disagree. Kasich didn't campaign in MS, particularly. He made one campaign stop (on the coast). There was a good organization of Republican officials in MS, but that was put together by them, not by the Kasich campaign. Other than the local organization and their work mostly with social media, there wasn't campaign effort.

So - while what you saw was the Republican leaders you mention, my disagreement is that the man didn't campaign here knowing it was going to be a Trump state. it appears that his campaign is focusing on states where there is not crossover voting (Trump has received a large amount of his vote from Dems that have no reason to vote in their primary) and in the mid-west states where Trump nor Cruz have their base.

For 1:00

Not all precincts in Madison County are in Senate District 25. Apparently you are in another district.

I went to vote and was asked where I live. They said I was not in the Senate District although I had voted in this race the last time. I called Delbert Hosemann's office this morning and spoke to an election attorney. I told her all the things that had happened at the Ridgeland Recreation Center when I went to vote, including how my paper ballot was put under the table by the poll worker. Not in a box, not in a sealed envelope, just put under the table as she started to talk to the next people in line.
Drivers license never checked, paper ballot never put in an envelope, nothing except shoved under the table. I called and spoke to the attorney and I told her that people had been campaigning heavily on my street and I asked her if my street was in the district to vote for the Senate race. She said it was, and I asked her if I had been denied the right to vote on Tuesday, and she said yes. The people at the Ridgeland Recreation Center did not know what they were doing and they should never be able to work the polls again. They were totally ignorant, and that is no excuse for what they did. Again, who is in charge of this?
They suggested I call the election commissioners and the circuit clerk's office, and that although they had received many complaints this morning, they could not do anything about it.

The people who work the polls do so for the opportunity to help their favorite politician. Most of the time the politician pays these poll workers for what they do for him.
Wake up, this is still Ms. Do you think there would be an honest election?

Find it interesting that Kingfish did not allow any comment on the Billingsly-Michel race until the day before the vote.

Oh, but he meant to. That was just accidental.

Ballot Box said...

11:05; Billingsly could have run for supervisor in Madison County and won, but, first he would have had to move into a different district. He could not have defeated Sheila Jones. Could he have defeated John Howland? Perhaps. A resident at Oxford House could have won that election contest.

I heard today from a reliable source 4,000 + people in 5 precincts voted in the senate race that weren't in the district. Billingsley heavily won all the Madison precincts. The race was close enough that the outcome could have been dramatically different considering the mess up. The race still hasn't been officially called due to all the problems. Why aren't you on top of this KF?

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
